Penarth campaign group unveil exciting plans

The campaign led by a group of Penarth ladies to improve road safety for horse riders has unveiled some exciting new plans.

“Pass Wide and Slow” recently presented their petition to the National Assembly for Wales calling for better driver awareness of the dangers riders face on the roads.

They now want to take the matter further – and have the issue debated in the Senedd.

South Wales Central AM Andrew RT Davies – who chairs the Assembly’s Cross Party Group on Horses – met up with Jo Lovell and Rachel Francis from the campaign at Jo’s Penarth home.

He has now entered the ballot for a Short Debate – and also plans to table a Backbench Debate to ensure the campaign is discussed by AMs in the Senedd.

Mr Davies said, “It was great to meet up with Jo and Rachel again and discuss their exciting plans for Pass Wide and Slow.

“The petition was a great success but this must only be the start.

“We now need to ensure AMs and Welsh Government Ministers realise how vital it is action is taken to make our roads safer.

“I’m delighted to offer support – and have entered the ballot for a Short Debate in the Assembly.

“In the New Year – I will also look to build cross-party support for a Backbench motion to be debated in the Senedd.”
